This is a photoetch Interior set to for the Hong Kong Models B-17 E/F. This set with three photoetch sheets, two are colored and adds a lot of needed detail to the cockpit and other areas. They really make the cockpit stand out.

In the packet is:

  • 2 x colored photoetch sheet
  • 1 photoetch sheet
  • 1 instruction sheet

Summary

This is a fantastic set for added some great additional details to this massive kit. The cockpit parts really add great additional and replacement details to this kit. I did find some of the small parts were very tricky to add. The set includes lots of additional instrument panels and details. The only advice will give is that there are some additional raised details that need to be removed to allow the install of the parts. The other item of note is that the straps are provided for the Parts J7, J8, J31, and J32, of which there is a total of 16 but only parts for 12 sets are provided. The straps could also have been longer in some locations. The seat cushion parts look at little stiff and could do with being thinner so they could be shaped better to look more like cushions.

Thanks go to Eduard for providing this set to review and IPMS USA for allowing me to review it for them.
